KEEP OUTHOUSE OPEN
Like many other community centres and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, Outhouse closed the doors to our building on March 12th, in line with Government recommendations. In an instant all the income from our social enterprise ceased completely and it has been near zero ever since as we have had minimum opportunity to Keep Outhouse Open.
Outhouse Staff and Board are doing everything we can to Keep Outhouse open for our community. However this is just the first step in a long battle for us. Our capacity to generate income will be severely hampered so long as the necessary Covid-19 restrictions are in place. The ability of our centre to operate at full capacity is some way off in the future.
Reopening will bring increased costs for us with minimal income to offset these costs. However we are determined to do this. We will take every step possible to keep Outhouse open but we will need your help. For the first time in 23 years we are directly asking you, our community for help.
